chardy.. I could be wrong but I think you could use just about any pot.. It will just be a little more or less sensitive depending on which one you use...

thanks for the reply. I am excited to get the cameras in the woods but I am at a stopping point.

no problem.. when I was making Jon's simple timer for my MS20's, I went to Rat Shack and bought a few trimmer pots and they worked fine.. I am not sure what size he is using, but they are cheap so you could buy a few and try them out...

Just FYI.
Found them. www.mouser.com
The Potentiometer is 0K to 500K single-turn...
I have no problem ordering and soldering the pot in. I know PicController is busy...

If you can find the same(or close enough) pot at Radio Shack it will save you on the shipping and handling with mouser.. Unless you order a good bit of stuff you will have to pay a $5 handling charge for a $0.50 pot....

chardy,

How did the board look when you got it? Was the POT totally missing? I can't understand how this could happend since all boards were inspected and tested before shipping. Email me with your address and I'll get a new POT out to you.
